Chemical Bond on computer screen

Coming soon to a screen near you....

You know how magazine publishers like to galvanize you to action with breathless “This will be your last issue—renew now” warnings as your subscription expires? This month, we really mean it:

This is your final issue of the Chemical Bond in its current format: printed, bound, and mailed.

... and a galvanic response is entirely appropriate. But next month, the Chemical Bond will be all-electronic. You can’t renew.

What can you do, then?

Bond disappears

Will you be needing the webBond printed and mailed to you?

Note: this item is pertinent only for the paper Chemical Bond. Besides, if you’re reading this, you can get to the internet, so your answer is “no.” If, somehow, you decide to use this to request a printed copy, be sure to include your mailing address and national ACS member number (from an old Chemical Bond or a current Chemical & Engineering News.—Ed.

If you won’t be able to access the webBond on the internet starting in January, we’ll print it and mail it to you on request. It won’t be as pretty as the booklet format you’re used to, but it will provide all the information you need to keep up with Section news and activities.

Please help us adhere to the spirit of our web-only Bond. Request mailing only if you can’t get to the internet. Cut this item out—your contact information will be on the other side—confirm your request below, and mail to:

Yes, please mail a printed copy of the webBond to me at the address on the other side. This request is effective for all issues in 2010 or until I send you other instructions.

There is also the Henry Godt Memorial Lecture, recapping the past year, which is given by a surprise speaker.

For many members, this is the only event they attend each year.
